Hi, it was my birthday today which was a bit depressing. I am not really enjoying getting any older but I had a nice surprise. I went to pick up my paintings from AGRA in their Summer exhibition. This was the first time that I have exhibited and was happily surprised to have received a commended for this piece and to have sold it as well. Happy Birthday to me. May be getting older isn't so bad.

Merry Christmas to everyone and I hope that you all get a chance to relax and enjoy the moment.
I have been painting another beach scene. I was captivated by the power of the parental bond and child. The protective nature of the father sheltering his child from the impact of the waves. They continue to roll up on the shoreline and churn up the sand in the shallows while dad and baby play in the shallows.
